Believe it or not, there was once a time in Ozzy Osbourne’s career when the nickname Prince of Darkness was used without irony. The man who helped invent heavy metal was a drug-fueled, alcohol-swilling maniac who bit the heads of bats and was blamed for teen suicides. A reality TV series on MTV introduced the world to the lighter side of Osbourne, but it wasn’t until recently that his transformation from scary to softy was complete. Earlier this month the man who was once “going off the rails on a crazy train” released his first self-help book, “Trust Me, I'm Dr. Ozzy: Advice From Rock's Ultimate Survivor,” in which the newly vegan rocker offers friendly advice on a number of health, family and personal relationship problems. —Jeff Royer
